"Living in harmony with Nature" season II

-Susan Sharma

The second in our series of planned one day workshops was concluded successfully on 28th June, 2014 in Gurgaon.  In the second part of the write-up on the workshop we bring to you the story of how Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) managed over a period of more than  eight years of concerted effort, to get the Greater Manas National Park of Assam out of the Danger List of UNESCO.  

Dr.Mayukh Chatterjee of WTI, primatologist and expert in wildlife conservation talked about "Conserving India's wildlife through integrative approaches".  

He presented two major case studies one on Greater Manas, Assam and one on Nagzira-Nawegaon, Maharashtra. 

The story of Manas can be viewed in the you tube clip below.

Mayukh's power point presentation titled "Conserving India's wildlife through Integrative and Holistic approaches"has been uploaded on and can be seen at the link

Archtect Deependra Prashad gave a talk on "Environmentally efficient building design".   He mentioned how more and more Government buildings are now certified by  GRIHA and LEEDS as Green buildings.  The country has now more than three different standards for EPI or Energy Performance Index of apartments, multi storey flats etc.  But are these sustainability standards helping in bridging the social divide?  For  the village or slum dweller, sustainability issues like drinking water, electricity are a daily struggle.  The low EPI of his dwelling is often way below the permissible EPI of an urban dweller.  INTBAU India or International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism looks at these issues and more.
